Civil Services India presumes that the cut off marks could increase five seven marks more than the previous years
Last year the cut off mark was over 209 for open category candidates and 194 marks for OBC. The SC & ST candidates cut off mark was 184.
So anyone who is confident of scoring 315 and more out of 400 are in the safe zone. The border line cases could be those scoring 310 and more and they need to keep their fingers crossed.
Those who are in the safe zone can start preparation for the main examination. Civil Services India wishes them best of luck.
